Florida Fishing Areas


Florida is known for its incredible fishing opportunities. There is a wide variety of freshwater, saltwater, and brackish water fishing options available across the state. The most popular angling destinations in Florida include the Florida Keys, Miami, Tampa Bay, and Destin.

Florida is home to a diverse range of species of fish, including largemouth bass, redfish, snook, tarpon, bonefish, and many more. The best times of year to fish in Florida vary depending on the species being targeted. Generally, the spring and fall months are considered the best for many species, as the weather is mild and the fish are more active. The average seasonal temperatures in Florida range from the mid-60s to the mid-80s.

When it comes to bait and lures, there are many options available. Live bait such as shrimp, squid, and mullet are popular choices, as are artificial lures like topwater plugs, jigs, and soft plastics.

Interesting fishing facts about Florida include that it is home to the largest number of saltwater fishing records in the United States, and that the Florida Everglades is the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles coexist. Florida also has more than 30,000 lakes and over 1,000 miles of coastline, providing endless opportunities for anglers of all skill levels.
